Grevillea alpina

Mountain Grevillea
Proteaceae
Evergreen, Ground covers, Shrubs

GREVILLEA

This plant group generally has fine-textured foliage and long, slender, curved flowers, usually borne in dense clusters. Many cannot tolerate salt-laden soils, poor water quality, heavy summer irrigation, or heavy frost, but all are attractive enough to warrant some risk taking. Like other members of the protea family, they are sensitive to high levels of phosphorus in the soil. Fertilize lightly and avoid high-phosphorus fertilizers.

Grevillea alpina

Highly variable in size and form. Among the most widely distributed is ‘East Grampians’, a low spreader (to 2 1/2 ft. high and 5 ft. wide) with inch-long bright green leaves and masses of red-and-yellow flowers from fall through spring. Full sun or light shade.
